Breast carcinoma is increasingly treated by conservation therapy. This includes wide local excision and axilliary node clearance followed by radiotherapy to the remaining breast. Therapeutic irradiation may be complicated by several problems, including the development of other malignant tumours. We report a case of angiosarcoma occurring following such treatment and present a review of the literature.
